Come on, readers, you know you can do better than that tripe, up top. Here's the gig: It's National Poetry Month. In a lot of states, including California, it's Earthquake Preparedness Month. It's also Wednesday afternoon and there's been news, yes, but it's time for a break -- a rhythmic brain quake -- so combine these dutiful celebratory themes and write yourself an earthquake poem. Or an earthquake preparedness poem. Maybe it's sad. Maybe silly. Doesn't have to rhyme but if it does that's dilly.
(What do you win? Jeers and accolades! Perhaps, even, smugness.)
